SEAker helps the identification of vessels engaged in suspicious or threatening behavior, supporting vessel interdiction and environmental protection.

HawkEye 360 Increases Analytic Capabilities to Combat Illegal Fishing

  (UNITED STATES, 6/9/2021)

HawkEye 360 Inc., the first commercial company to use formation-flying satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) data analytics, today announced the incorporation of a new trawling behavior detection capability to SEAkerTM, the company's maritime domain awareness product. This feature is a part of a series of new functionalities to be added within the year that will enable organizations to more comprehensively minimize maritime risk and protect national interests. HawkEye 360's expanding SEAker product offers an effective way to monitor and enforce the protection of our food, environment and national interests from illicit maritime activity.

The unique dataset enables SEAker to locate vessels even when they attempt to hide by deactivating or spoofing their Automatic Identification System (AIS) transceiver.

SEAker integrates location data, open fishing data and other fused maritime data sets, and applies a new deep learning algorithm to identify the underlying behaviors associated with trawling activity. SEAker analytics can similarly identify ship-to-ship rendezvous and dark ship activity, or vessels that do not broadcast Automatic Identification System (AIS) transmissions for extended periods of time. When correlated with HawkEye 360's RFGeo analytics and fused contextual information, these detection capabilities create invaluable insight into the opaque maritime domain.

"In order to police the illegal activities occurring across the vast oceans, the world needs — but does not yet have — timely, consistent, and actionable intelligence on illicit vessel behaviors," said HawkEye 360 CEO John Serafini. "HawkEye 360 is proud to launch unparalleled commercial capabilities, made possible by our expanding constellation and analytics portfolio, that allow authorities worldwide to monitor and take action against bad actors involved in IUU fishing."

IUU fishing poses grave threats to global fish stocks and marine environments. The common practice of bottom trawling specifically can disrupt fragile ocean floor environments and capture significant amounts of by-catch, including sea turtles, dolphins, porpoises and more.

The economic consequences of IUU fishing are also significant. It is estimated to cost the seafood industry as much as $50 billion each year, cutting into the incomes of honest fishing businesses globally. IUU fishing operations are also frequently linked to forced labor and human rights abuses — confronting IUU fishing, therefore, will protect both the environment and vulnerable labor populations.

IUU fishing thrives on a complex, hard-to-regulate supply chain. With limited and varying regulations across the globe, legitimate maritime activity blends in with illegal activity. While AIS data could drastically improve visibility with strict enforcement, it does not account for vessels intentionally turning off their tracking devices, so the depth of IUU fishing problems could be greater than public information suggests.

"It's a long, arduous task for analysts to manually and accurately identify illegal fishing activity. By automating potential illicit activity pattern recognition, we're saving analysts valuable time by rapidly providing these insights to more effectively verify and recommend responses," said Tim Pavlick, VP of Product, HawkEye 360. "With this new capability, our maritime domain awareness solutions will now have an even more drastic impact in the fight against IUU fishing for our customers, helping them reliably identify illicit maritime activity and take appropriate action — including vessel interdictions and legal convictions."

HawkEye 360's growing constellation of satellites geolocate a diverse set of radio frequency signals emitted by ships, such as X-band and S-band marine navigation radars and VHF radios, offering a trusted and timely way to monitor the high seas for illicit activity.
